Hey, just saw a great vid on You Tube of a small gathering of intellectuals in NY devoted to political causes. The guest speakers were the noted global pariahs, both communists, Noam Chomsky and Arundhati Roy (Booker Prize winner for her celebrated novel "The God of Small Things") airing their free-thinking opinions on the pettiness of imperial USA and the hypocrisy of governments around the world.

The sentencing to death of a pregnant Sudanese female convert to Christianity under the "apostasy" provision of the Sharia Law has drawn sharp condemnation from a number of Western countries - but no word from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a number of whose member-states have draconian punishments for apostates on their books. How can a person be forced to stick to his/her ancestral faith when he/she clearly wants to opt out of it by switching to another faith or to perhaps quit all religions in favor of atheism?

EXEGESIS ON APOSTASY IN ISLAM

Many Muslim apologists who're embarrassed by the blatant violation of fundamental human rights in Islam as seen in the death penalty in the Sharia that targets apostasy are quick to point out that the Quran does not recommend capital punishment for those who quit Islam but that an ill-defined Hadith says so. I will use certain key verses from the Quran to show that the book while it does not outright command that a person who leaves Islam should be put to death it however conveys a strong impression of forcibly restraining a person from quitting the faith. Watch out for my exegesis of this controversial subject in Islam that I shall type out some time in the near future.

PARTICULAR & GENERAL:

1) The particular leads to the general.

2) As such the particular is related to the general or in other words the particular is an aspect of the general.

3) Each aspect no matter how much it differs from the other aspects in surface characteristics is at its core the same in the essence as the core of the other aspects thus making each aspect of existence a holon.

4) The cosmic manifestation is constituted of n number of holon each in different evolutionary stages of surface activation thereby making each class of holons appear different from the other classes of the same.

5) To manifest any aspect, or, in others words, to manifest any particular, the superior information content and the higher energy level of the general would be needed. So, this necessity of bringing the general into the picture if an aspect or a particular belonging to it is needed to be manifested in an activated sense thus makes it impossible for most natural aspects to be reproduced or created from scratch in the lab - a living cell, a sentient organism, mind, singularity, vacuum state, hydrogen atom, a tree, a star and other significant aspects of existence cannot be created from scratch in any lab. As for life, well, life, being an aspect of consciousness, is ingrained in cosmic energy as a naturally existing fact. As a result, any attempt, as for instance, to create life from scratch is bound to fail since the general principle of life with its innate information content, its native sentience and requisite degree of energy would be required to manifest life in chemicals even if they happen to be the right mix of chemicals. Just having the correct mixture of chemicals will not make it a living cocktail since what would be absent in the chemical concoction is the presence of the general principle of life whose activated presence is absolutely essential to bring to life the mixture of assembled chemical molecules.

A new survey of medical data going back more than two decades has found that the health benefits of circumcision far outweigh the risks. The publication of the article on April 4 by the medical journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings is the latest development to tip the scales in favor of circumcision in the long-running scientific, cultural and political struggles over the practice.

Some say this series of blows has damaged the efforts of American anti-circumcision activists.

“They’re in disarray. They used to be very organized, raising money and so forth,” said Edgar Schoen, a clinical professor emeritus of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, and a longtime champion of the medical benefits of circumcision.“People don’t listen to them that much anymore.”

The authors of the new survey reviewed some 3,000 studies on male circumcision published since 1988 and found evidence indicating that circumcision significantly reduced the chances of contracting a number of diseases, including urinary tract infections, human papillomavirus and HIV.
“When considered together with ethical and human rights arguments, neonatal circumcision should logically be strongly supported and encouraged as an important evidence-based intervention akin to childhood vaccination,” wrote authors Brian Morris, Stefan Bailis and Thomas Wiswell.

ARE THERE ILL-EFFECTS OF CIRCUMCISION?

1) Circumcision dates back to the Babylonian cultures of the ME that predate Judaism.

2) While circumcision supposedly confers certain health benefits like it is said to lower (not completely eliminate) the incidence of contracting certain diseases like urinary tract infections, human papilloma virus and HIV, it only means, on the other hand, that unsafe sexual acts or lack of penile hygiene were not adhered to by the uncircumcised persons who fell prey to the disease condition.

3) Anyway, not all uncircumcised persons contract these diseases even if they practice unsafe sex and/or do not adhere to basic hygiene.

4) Now, what is missing in the health reports is the ill-effects of circumcision such as the high risk of catching infections after genital mutilation, bleeding to death or high loss of blood of the infant and most importantly the damaging effects of the chopping off of the foreskin that leads to the destruction of thousands of sensitive nerve endings that not only could jolts the entire nervous system with the possible unbalancing of the brain centers and besides it could also lead to the lowering of sensitivity in the penile area or in related aspects of the mind-body equation.

5) I want neuroscientists to conduct in-depth studies on the electrical activity in the penile nerves and/or nervous system leading to the brain centers before and after the circumcision in order to observe the changes in the electrical activity in these nerves/brain regions and to see if they lead to the unbalancing of the nerve-brain system and its effect on functionality of the system and on behavior over the years.

HIGH DEGREE OF ABNORMALITIES AMONG JEWS

Already, the incidence of insanity, numerous nerve diseases, suicide rate and homosexuality is very high in the Jewish community and so I want an unbiased and an in-depth medical study to investigate the degree of damage contributed by circumcision to the above-named long list of Jewish abnormalities.

Thank God, the Jews are increasingly marrying outside the community which could result in a significant lowering of the various abnormalities (insanity, numerous nerve diseases, suicide rate and homosexuality) that are rampant in the Jewish community.

Parallels with vaccination. Vaccination does not only benefit you, but the general public as well since it reduces the availability of potential vectors which in turn reduces the repro and spread of the disease.

Ditto for the organ chomping.

Actually, orthodox Judaism appears to be booming. Thank Goddess.

There has always been loss from the unaffiliated and from the other movements. Thats nothing new.

Yes and circumcision is damaging to the person.

I feel that unbiased scientific studies can establish the link between circumcision and destabilization of the nerve-brain system that brings in many marked ill-effects in the body and mind of the circumcised persons.

Once the deleterious effects of this barbaric practice of circumcision is official, it will easily lead to its overthrow or debunking and then sensible people can make intelligent choices and if possible do away with the damaging practice.
